around mitt romney's idea to raise taxes on the rich by capping deductions. the chairman of the house republican conference says the willingness to all of a sudden work together boils down to timing. according to congressman deb hesterly, compromise works best after an election. ladies, thank you for joining me. you heard the comment there that bipartisanship works best after elections. i don't know if that's full proof because you have paul ryan saying that the american people voted for a divided government. seeing power in the house and a democrat in the white house. >> we have to make this work now and a few years ago, you would have heard them saying, no, we can't compromise. we're going to have to stick to our guns. i think this was a real shellacking for the republicans. now you're hearing all of 2016 people walking it back. all of the tea party types saying not all of them, but some of them who want to run for president saying i think we need to scale this back. we can't dumb it down. e we can't be assertive with the american people. they don't want to hear all this. so it's no
that apart from the muster between the romney position and the obama position, that there was actually very little difference. i thought in the third debate the foreign policy debate that was hosted by bob schieffer that became effort. look at how the president is handling it as compared to how governor romney would have handled it. i don't know there was that much daylight between them. i think the president has a renewed option to start that peace process again. because too much time has gone off the clock without serious conversation and you would hope that a cease-fire in gaza would cause a redirection of efforts towards the west bank and try and at least put that process back on track. >> when we talk about what's going on with egypt, the united states annually gives roughly $2 billion to egypt and something that senator graham made clear over the weekend is to remind egypt everyone is watching their steps. >> egypt, watch what you do and how you do it. you're teetering with the congress on having your aid cut off if you keep inciting violence between the israelis and the palestinians.
is the exit polling. >> i wonder if these are the same republican pollsters who said romney is going to win in a landslide. >> touche, touche. >> you have to take this with grain of salt. the reality is the american people knew what barack obama was running for when he was running this reelection campaign. he said he was going to raise taxes on the higher income people. he's following through with his promise. he said he's going to raise taxes on the middle class. he's following through on that promise. what's not getting stated enough is everyone will get a tax cut if president obama's proposal goes through because even people with the highest will get a tax cut on the first $250,000 of their income. so it's not just a class-specific tax kuchlt it's a tax cut that refers to that part of your income and that hasn't been announced and discussed enough. >> what about the fact -- and we're going to talk with them a little bit later. congressman peter defazio, he's coming on with us a little bit later in the hour and he's indicate thad this fiscal cliff is not what everyone makes it out to be.
conservative journalists that felt it was a cover-up and saw the debacle in the debate with governor romney when he attempted to bring it up and never the did again in a debate form. here you have the politics of re-election behind us. what do you make of the president's answers regarding mbenbenghazi and especially aga this issue with susan rice? >> i think that's a good point and possible that the president feels like the last time someone attempted to politicize this issue they lost and angry that he perceives that's what's being done and what we saw was a tone, a very aggressive tone, a sort of a swagger, i think, from the president that he feels that, you know, someone asked if he felt he had a mandate and the answer is clear more than anything in his tone and the way that he came out pretty aggressively on almost every issue and talked about how he was going to -- how he was going to fight and clearly believes if the republicans choose to take him on they'll lose and the republicans firing back immediately. they clearly differ with him. >> to your point of clarify, the president talki
